Overall a pleasant meal. A bit heavy on the sauce, frankly. The filet with cherry and wine sauce was swimming in the sauce, as was my son’s pasta. The flavors were wonderful for both, but just not my style to have that much sauce. Wine list is great. Good choices, and reasonably priced. We sat outside, and if you look up from where we were sitting, you see the sassi lighting up above you all around, as the sky goes dark. I would recommend reserving, especially if more than two persons.

Ate here twice while staying in the Sassi. Both times the service was attentive and kind to non-Italian speakers. Both times our meals were very good and if we return to Matera we would eat here again.

A simple but tasty spot in old-town Matera. They have ample outdoor seating, which is lovely. Basic, local dishes. Good local wine. What's not to like?

While travelling with my family at four we popped in to make a reservation made afternoon and were welcomed by I think the head cook who was absolutely lovely . We came back at the agreed time(Worked out better than I thought it was going to do to the language barriers) and had the local cheeses, delicious cuts of meat and a house recommended bottle of red wine to round out a fantastic dinner experience.
Highly recommended and would go back again

We were stayng in a hotel close to da Nico and they recommended it for lunch. There is a small outdoor terrace. The food was amazing. We took the sampler so we could try several small dishes. It was more than enough for two people.
